Vaccines and Immunizations

Do not receive any immunizations or vaccines without first contacting the Transplant office. Your doctor will discuss with you which immunization or vaccine you should receive.

Avoid exposure to people who are ill with colds or the flu.

If you have not had chicken pox and are exposed, please call us immediately. You may need to receive a special medication. Chicken pox can be a serious illness for transplant recipients.
